USMLE Scores 210 (159) NBME assesment score

I was pretty shocked at this score...it is the lowest possible on the nbme score table. Micro and path were so low that they didn't even have bars..just stars indicating the lowest performance. I only did goljan audios for cardio and endocrine. I am doing uworld and have completed less than half and averaging in the 50s - doing it subject-wise/timed. I have 7 weeks until my exam..Is it crazy to try to think I can raise it to 220 at least in these 7 weeks?

Is there anywhere I can get kaplan 2010 dvds without having to download, b/c my internet is pretty slow.

I am really worried and its so hard to pick up a book again after seeing this score...someone please respond

You have 7 weeks you should really try to watch some Kaplan videos if you can get a hold of them. Also listen to all of goljan along with FA. Do questions from UWorld everyday! you can do it you still have 7 weeks!

Yes. Def do 12-14 hours a day. I am not satisfied unless I do at least 12 hours a day! My exam is March 31st :/ I started in Jan with Goljan audios then did Kaplan videos in about 1.5 months (all kaplan videos). I annotated along in FA and did UWorld questions everyday, I am now in my last 15 days or so and review one topic everyday with my friend. I do questions everyday and try to just memorize certain facts.

You have 7 weeks so you can listen to certain lectures to strengthen your weaknesses. Don't be depressed n sad. Just hang in there and go hardcore in these 7 weeks. You can do it.
